Nano in the Art
Exhibition and Competition at NanoIsrael 2010 Conference
For the first time in Israel, NanoIsrael 2010 is proud to host an exhibition of works of art based on nanotechnology. Epson will sponsor the exhibition and provide prizes for the top three selected works, as judged by a jury of experts in the arts and sciences.
Nanoart features nanolandscapes (molecular and atomic landscapes which are natural structures of matter at molecular and atomic scales) and nanosculptures (structures created by manipulating matter at molecular and atomic scales using chemical and physical processes). These structures are visualized with research tools like scanning electron microscopes and atomic force microscopes and their scientific images are captured and may be further processed by using different artistic techniques to convert them into artworks showcased for large audiences.
NanoIsrael 2010 participants are invited to submit their work via disc on key (DOK). Picture must be received by Kenes before Friday, 1st October, 2010
Due to shortage of space, only 30 pictures will be on display at the conference. Pictures will be accepted on a ‘first come first serve’ basis providing the format of submission fits the requirements.
